An initiative to facilitate conversations and research about growth in our region
Four speakers were brought-in to address these issues and offer potential solutions, insights, and inspiration for future action:
After the speakers had presented, audience table groups collectively addressed what was discussed, each listing some best practices and formulating a question related to those for the speakers to address during a panel discussion.
Overall, the meeting was inspiring and enabled a diverse cadre of regional stakeholders to engage and collectively explore solutions to an issue that is seemingly impossible to solve. Thankfully, this meeting proved that there are solutions and that those solutions need bold decision-makers and regional collaboration. Working in silos is not an option if Denver and the metro region is going to seriously address the housing crisis and associated issues of gentrification and displacement. This meeting was one such effort to tear down the silos and get people talking.
